WELLAND – It’s nearly time to dig out the skates and take the family skating. The City of Welland has outdoor ice rinks for you to enjoy. Some rinks are maintained (weather permitting) by city staff and others are maintained by volunteers. Some are still looking for volunteers to step forward, get involved, and maintain for the neighbourhood to enjoy.
The following ice rinks are maintained by volunteers:
* Rinks without volunteers may not be maintained and most likely will not be suitable for skating. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer for one of the below rinks, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or call (905) 735-1700 ext. 3000
